Some questions just don’t really need to be asked.

Before critisizing the work – one should read the holy Ruhnama with an open mind. Why is it considered gauche to mock Christianity, Judaism, Islam, etc. – but not the Holy Ruhanama? The book in it’s entirety may be viewed at www.ruhanama.com or www.rukhnama.com

What’s not to mock? By all means everyone, go read it and come up with your own reasons. Personally, I’m a little skeptical of the holiness of the writings of any low-rent Stalin who tries to inject himself into the center of his people’s faith.

I guess this only further seals that I’ll never get a Turkmen visa as long as Turkmenbashi the Great rules the place.
